6 March 2017

The 2013 review of the 2011 UK HIV Position Paper ‘Towards Zero Infections’ identified the integration of HIV with wider development needs.

Our programmes pursue this approach through strengthening health systems, supporting sexual reproductive health and rights, and tackling the broader drivers of the HIV epidemic such as stigma, discrimination and gender inequality. DFID have no immediate plans for developing a stand-alone strategy.
